FORT MYERS, FL -Chelsie Dahlbeck faced a Lee County judge on Monday after the State's Attorney and her lawyer reached a plea deal. Dalhlbeck was accused of hitting San Carlos resident, Keisha Bien-Amie as she walked to her school bus in the early morning hours of August 10th, 2012. It's what investigators say that Dahlbeck did next that made her actions a crime. She drove home without rendering aid to critically injured, Bien-Amie.
Dahlbeck's deal had her plead no contest to wreckless driving causing injury, a first degree misdemeanor. The charge normally is punishable by a year behind bars, instead Dahlbeck will spend the next 11 months and 29 days on County probation. She will also pay more than 700 dollars in fines and will pay restitution to the Bien-Amie family over the next 5 years.
The Bien-Amie family was not in the courtroom, but reportedly agrees with the plea deal.
